    EPISODE 5: Pastry Week

    EPISODE 5: Pastry Week

    Welcome to the Great British Baking Show Vegan Challenge! Join me as I recreate the challenges from The Great British Baking Show's latest season without using eggs, dairy or animal products! Watch as I discuss episode 5 of season 11 of the Great British Baking Show and how I veganized Laura’s Cheese and Onion Cornish Pasty. The key to avoiding a soggy bottom on these pasties is to keep your ingredients cold. Work fast and before making the pastry, chill all the ingredients including the flour. This easy vegan baking recipe is egg free, dairy free, and includes a vegan egg wash and vegan cream. This week for Pastry Week we're talking about the all the different kinds of pastries and which ones are hardest to veganize, how I went about veganizing Laura's Cornish pasties, my biggest tip for making flaky and buttery pie crust without the butter and avoiding a soggy bottom. We're also discussing our favorite contestants from seasons past and what bakes we'd practice ahead of time if we were to go on the show. Which one would you do?

    EPISODE 3: BREAD WEEK

    EPISODE 3: BREAD WEEK

    I'm making The Great British Baking Show's challenges completely vegan. For Bread Week I veganized Mark's Irish soda breads. The savory one was flavored with cheddar and sausage and the sweet one was a chocolate and stout. As part of the challenge I also had to make a butter to go with the bread. I made all 3 completely vegan without eggs, dairy or animal products.

    On today's episode we talk about how I did it, play a game of Bake Off trivia, talk about the best tips for making bread and churning your own vegan butter.

    You can buy the recipe, along with all the other The Great British Baking Show Vegan Challenge recipes, at www.CuriousCatBakery.com
